There is a basic human wisdom that can help
solve the world’s problems. It doesn’t belong to any one culture or region or
religious tradition—though it can be found in many of them throughout history.
It’s what Chögyam Trungpa called the sacred path of the warrior. The sacred
warrior conquers the world not through violence or aggression, but through
gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. The warrior discovers the basic
goodness of human life and radiates that goodness out into the world for the peace
and sanity of others. That’s what the Shambhala teachings are all about, and
this is the book that has been presenting them to a wide and appreciative
audience for more than twenty years.
